Does anyone actually practice selective polishing?

No not really. Pretty much most patients have stain on the lingual surfaces and there is no real harm in polishing all teeth twice a year. Many patients would be upset with me and think I am not doing a good job on them if I didn't polish all of their teeth. For teeth that don't have visible stain, however, I just do a quick pass by with the prophy cup and paste.
